Consumer Reports is advertising one of the most amazing offers they have ever made for a one-year subscription — only $12.
Here’s the webpage promoting the offer:
What you can’t see clearly in this miniaturized version of the webpage above is a potentially expensive catch on the left side:
The above fine print is shown actual size, and indicates that your subscription will renew every year unless you stop it, and you will be charged the then current regular subscription price, probably in the $26-$29 range.
Although another disclosure is made on the final checkout page in similarly small type, it would have been nice of this pro-consumer organization to more clearly and boldly disclose the continuing nature of the subscription at a much higher price.
